Model 25 is the larger model, designed for cooking larger meals for more than one person. Hard anodized ultralight aluminium construction.

Finnish Sawu tent stove

Finnish Sawu tent stove

235.99 USD

The Sawu (as in Savu = Smoke) is an evolution of the standard Finnish military 60´s tent stove. A relatively lightweight and portable little tin bucket. This is really nothing fancy but just about as good a stove as you can get without adding any fancy extra oddities, simple and very user friendly. It is even rahter lightweight, only 6,50 kg!

Now, if there's something the Finnish army can do right, it's the sleeping gear. Our kip mat is the best one we've ever seen, to be honest. These are made by the official army contractor, Savotta. You can see from the price you've got quality coming.

Admittedly a traditional sleeping mat is OK, but if you want to take it a few steps further, try this:

  • The 1,2 cm thick foam keeps cold away and cushions just enough.
  • 25 cm wide foldable extensions on both sides and a 20 cm long one on the foot end. These are super - you won't touch the wet ground even if you slip while asleep...
  • ...which is unlikely, thanks to good friction on the top of the mat.
  • Length 190 cm (+ 20 cm), width 50 cm (+ 50 cm), weight 1 kg.
  • Elastic loops to secure the mat - you won't be needing extra straps to keep this rolled. You can also use the loops to secure the mat to the rucksack, like some of us did in the army. If you did this wrong, the mat constantly banged against the back of your helmet, which is something that god fairly annoying on a long tab.
  • Made of very high quality materials. These are meant to work in Finnish weather conditions, which are very cold when they're not otherwise wet and nasty.
  • The workmanship is also top notch, and to the best of our knowledge fill the army requirements. Well OK, you wouldn't expect any less from a kip mat this expensive.

Compared to self-inflatable mats, the advantage of a "traditional" foam mat is the impeccable durability and ease of use. These won't mind if you happen to shove them into something sharp.

Made by Savotta, made in Finland

These are the same stuff Savotta makes for the Finnish military, the only difference is in the tags where the official FDF "castle" has been left out. Bombproof, high quality kit!
